Author information

Department of Radiology and Neurosurgery, Mt. Sinai Medical Center, New York, New York 10029, USA.


This article provides a firm foundation in the gross and microscopic anatomy of the motor cortex. It reviews the sites, Brodmann regions, normal function, and deficits associated with the primary motor cortex, supplementary motor area, presupplementary motor area, and the cingulate motor area in preparation for understanding the functional MR imaging studies that are reviewed in the later articles.
